WHAT ARE THE DETAILS OF FALL SHARE?

GFC-potatoesSTART DATE: Oct 10, 2013 END DATE: Dec 13, 2013 FREQUENCY: Every Week NUMBER OF DISTRIBUTIONS: 10 PURCHASE BEFORE: Oct 1st, 2013 This Fall, join your colleagues or organization members in receiving a weekly bounty of locally grown produce by becoming a GFC member. Our program provides a Base or Family Share from the GFC that is already packed into a convenient and partially reusable GOOD FOOD cardboard box. Members that have signed up for a Pre-Boxed Share will show up to the chosen Drop Spot after a consistent, set delivery time each week. There they will find a food box --labeled according to share type-- waiting for them, ready to take home. Members take the box home, and (if you would) flatten them and return them to the Drop Spot the following week. (our costs and our planet thank you!). The following week, the GFC picks up the empty boxes and drops off new ones.
